In Harmony with the Environment: Wind-dyed House, Japan

In Harmony with the Environment: Wind-dyed House, Japan | Communication design | Scoop.it

Wind-dyed House by acaa in Yokosuka Kanagawa, Japan


From the architect:

A residential building located halfway up a cliff, overlooking the ocean. Thick clumps of trees that grow along the slope of the land surrounding the house cast a series of organic silhouettes that make the slope seem to come alive. We decided that the appropriate form to build would be as low-lying as possible, while also allowing the architecture to become embedded in the surrounding landscape according to the contours of the terrain. This would allow us to minimize the impact of the building on its environment.

 

The design of the walls plays an important role in creating the overall sense of presence that a building projects. As such, we also tried to prevent the walls of this house from becoming surfaces that would obstruct or impede movement and sight. Glass and screens along the enclosed perimeter of the house gives the second floor of this residence a certain transparency. Slender, deep-set eaves cast deep shadows on the facade of the building, softening the impact of the building's physical presence in relation to its environment.

Designers look at website design differently. Love this list of power website designs from How Magazine (one of my favorite design resources because even non-designers can understand it :). How's list focuses on designer "self promotion" websites, but plenty of :#StealThis in these designs too.

Marketing isn't broken. Big companies are just risk averse. Successful small businesses will always take the creative approach to marketing, because they have to (and they either don't have access to big data or don't know how to use it).

Replace Innovation with Design Thinking

"I am a huge believer in “innovation,” but the term has become over-used, and its meaning is often lost. And innovation is regularly confused with “invention,” alone. Innovation seems to have lost its alignment with supporting anchors such as values, pervasiveness, creativity, teamwork, customer-centricity, user-experience, collaboration, inquisitiveness and curiosity."

 

Design thinking can apply to every goal set by management and individuals, so it is truly pervasive.


Design thinking is an innovation approach that aggregates ideas in an iterative process that promotes unique and unusual ideas, and rewards failure, such that the resulting design has limited technological, or leadership bias in its outcome. The emphasis on collaboration also drives broad ownership for the success of solutions.


Design thinking, by its nature and foundation can help produce solutions to much larger and difficult problems, often referred to as “wicked problems”. The enemy of design thinking is fear and unwillingnessto let go.

Jenny Pesina's curator insight, January 12, 2013 8:27 PM

Original article: http://edudemic.com/2012/12/a-pedagogical-framework-for-digital-tools/

 

"The monological form of teaching is based on L. Wittgenstein's idea that the teacher is the expert within a language game, and that teaching is to be seen as the teachers communication of her expert knowledge to the student. Learning is the student's acquisition of this knowledge.

 

The dialogical form of teaching is based on J. Dewey's idea, that the student has an inherent basis of knowledge, which can be developed through interaction with the outside world and by solving problems. Learning is seen as the student's development of this inherent basis of knowledge.


The polyphonic form of teaching is based on K.E. Løgstrup idea, that knowledge is created through an equal exchange of many different individuals' perception of the world. Learning is the student's participation in this exchange."
